Liverpool Crew, name help

I have come across this man numerous times. I am probably getting his name wrong half the time. The names Bayle, Baye and Bayes all get accepted. Does anyone have an opinion on what his name is?

Not hundred per cent sure but to me it looks like it could be Baylis

Maybe Bayls?
Or could it be Bay with some kind of suffix?
The last 2 letters are unusual looking in both samples, and don't seem to "flow", but I can't think of what else they could be except l and s. Difficult.

If you scroll to the right of the page, does it have a signature you can look at, i found that often helped when i was looking through crew lists?

The year is 1907. He was 32 in this image so his birthdate would be about 1875, London. His position on board was steward. I've tried looking for him in the censuses but have not found anything definite. I thought if I have come across him numerous times other keyers may have too.

Hi

How about "W I Bay Es" as in esquire.

JMO - I can't think that someone who's an "esquire" would be a crew member on one of these ships. Could be wrong, though.
